Sommario

Decision-making in Parliaments and Referendums.- Parliamentary and Presidential Elections.- Governance: From Power-dividing to Power-sharing.- Majority Voting in Belfast, Dublin and London.- Continental Europe – Are We All Little Bolshevik?.- Asia, Where Voting was Invented.- Majoritarian Democracy – the Catalyst of Populism.




Trama

This timely book presents a critique of binary majority rule and provides insights into why, in many instances, the outcome of a two-option ballot does not accurately reflect the will of the people. Based on the author's first-hand experience, majority-voting is argued to be a catalyst of populism and its divisive outcomes have prompted countless disputes throughout Europe and Asia. In like manner, simple majority rule is seen as a cause of conflict in war zones, and of dysfunction in so-called stable democracies. In order to safeguard democracy, an all-party power-sharing approach is proposed, which would make populism less attractive to voters and governments alike. In geographically arranged chapters, well-tested alternative voting procedures (e. g. non-majoritarian Modified Borda Count) are presented in case studies of Northern Ireland, Central Europe, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Russia, China, North Korea and Mongolia.
